Jerry sounds like he might have had a few too many beers in the hot South Florida sun the way he sings on that Dark Star. Check out the "searchlight casting" line. I also think the H2H sounds a bit out sync. Something that happens a few times in '69. I am not a musician either so i can't put my finger on it, but to me they just don't seem to be on the same page at times during this performance. I do listen to it as i think it has a certain grittiness that is unique and is a nice contrast to the sonic perfection of the late '73 shows that i have been digging of late.

I think the monitors or something else with the sound was off in H2H, making it hard for the band, cuz you can hear Phil complain to Bear about it.

The rumor ( liner notes in the RT set ) was that there was acid spiking going on .
The band could play under doses that would cripple most people, but It might have made some of the timing ( along with their own roughness ) a little unsteady . And listen to Weir trying to tell his "Yellow Dog Story"...
These shows a re a little "unwashed", but in a fun way . In the first half of 69, the shows could be, set list wise, a lot alike , so the differences of performance are especially welcome .
